While surfing web sites for e-mail addresses, I was struck by the absurd degree to which many law firms are compelled to highlight their "diversity," some going so far as to detail their numbers. One offered a mouthful in noting a lawyer's work for the "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, and Allied Community (LGBTQQA)." The liberal obsession with identity has run amok. If any more adjectives are added to the libidinal mix you won't be able to recite it without coming up for air. What's next? "Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Necrophilic, Queer, Questioning,Allied, Impotent and Clueless"? ("LGBTNQQAIC" for short.) Can't we make it simple and call it, say, "everything but straight" (EBS)? This dyslexic would appreciate it.
